This incident underscores the importance of preparedness for any future seismic activities that may occur.

Surprisingly, even the distant state of Rajasthan felt the tremors on July 21. The city of Jaipur experienced a series of earthquakes within a half-hour window, leaving the residents startled. The latest quake, measuring 3.4 in magnitude, hit at around 4:25 am. Prior to that, a 4.4 magnitude earthquake shook the region at 4:09 am, followed by a 3.1 magnitude tremor at 4:22 am.
